Launched in 2012, the Positive View Foundation is a unique and ambitious charity that transforms the lives of disadvantaged young people through photography and film – whilst enjoying a high profile reputation amongst UK’s arts institutions and the international professional photography community.
Our personal develop projects are currently running on the Somerleyton estate, Lambeth, and will shortly be launched in Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
Positive View’s innovative and highly effective ten-week personal development programme is delivered by some of the UK’s most respected professional photographers and photography institutions.
